About Summit County

Summit County is unique in so many ways: The activities it offers; community organizations, caring for children, families and arts.

The ski areas of Arapahoe Basin, Breckenridge, Copper Mountain and Keystone are world-famous for snow, hospitality and ski terrain for all abilities. However, the focus on activities -is much broader than “just winter activities on the slopes”. Each town in Summit County has festivities year-round from the 4th of July Parades, the Ullr Fest, Copper Country, the Bluegrass Festival in Keystone and so much more. Then there are the amazing theater offerings and the arts that abound year-round with shows of comedy, drama and musicals.

Fuel your passion for biking, hiking, skiing, rafting, the arts and more or simply sit quietly in these serene mountains and take in the natural beauty that Summit County offers to everyone here.

“The Mountain Lifestyle” in this pristine environment with it’s year round offerings deserves to be protected and treasured. Regardless how far you have traveled to come here and enjoy this area, we, the locals ask kindly that you are courteous and respectful to “all things alive” and the environment here. It is special to us and we hope you enjoy your stay and appreciate the mountain lifestyle as much as we do. Let’s appreciate each other and this special environment, called Summit County.

The “Perfect Symbiosis”, it seems …

Summit County’s proximity to Denver,  and it’s international airport (DIA), as well as the “Big City Life” is unique. Coming “up” from Denver you have a short drive and after less than 80 miles on I-70, you’ll cross the threshold of the Continental Divide – so many adventures to look forward to!
